This is a weird question, but my upper thigh hurts for no apparent reason, even when I touch it lightly. I didn't hit it or anything, so I can't understand why it hurts.

Anyone else get this?

Yes, this is part of the hypersensitivity stuff that Lyme (and probably some coinfections) can cause. I've had this for a long, long time.

2 inches above my knee, it feels like a swollen lump, but that dpesn't hurt. A few inches higher, it hurts. Ice helped a little bit, but now it hurts again.

I think nodules like you describe are also a symptom of Lyme. The pain is probably referred to the few inches higher...nerves can do strange things when they are attacked by Lyme...
